I've been making some covers on my own and I've seen you guys making the (country of choice) Magnetic on the front.
I cant seem to get that one right with any font I have available, including the Metallica-font pack.zip.

Anything i've missed?

Oh, and here's a sample of what I'm doing right now.

I use the Switzerland Condensed Black font for the text, because it has a similar structure to the Death Magnetic font. You can download the Switzerland Condensed font family here. Once you type the text you want, use the "Create Warped Text" option to give it a little bend inwards. Here's a brief tutorial that shows where the option is located and what settings I use:

Also, that cover looks great. Please consider uploading your covers to the Artwork Gallery so others can use them too.

Oh, thanks! Just the man I wanted answers from. I really enjoy your work, and you did out Norway Inc. covers and menus the last time we made bootlegs from Oslo, Norway.

I dont use PS, but Paint.NET - Photoshop for idiots really. But it works.
I'll check out that font and see what I can do.
